Thank for the tips to come.
Welcome to the sport! Here are two tips.
1. Find yourself a good shop that you feel comfortable with. Be honest with the staff. They will steer you right.
2. Find yoursef a fly fishing club. That way you can network with others who may be in the same situation that you are in. You will also gain some fly fishing partners.
